a step to. slow that it's good to have you company you watching r.t. international will pay the price for refusing to accept an egyptian brokered cease fire that is the message from israel as it resumes its heavy bombardment of gaza the palestinian death toll has now risen to two hundred five tens of thousands of residents in northern and eastern garza were to leave their homes by the israeli military on wednesday morning in an apparent warning of more airstrikes to come. is in tel aviv. the latest news at least two palestinians have been killed in a targeted assassination in southern gaza it comes as the israeli defense forces drops leaflets wednesday morning on the north and east of the strip urging residents to leave their homes so it does seem as if some kind of
a strikes are being planned their late twenties date the first is radie victim was killed in motor fire he was a volunteer delivering food to soldiers along the israel gaza border since that peace was brokered some one hundred rockets fired at israel a quarter of which have been intercepted by the i'm anti missile defense system and the israeli foreign minister avigdor lieberman who is known for his hawkish views is now calling for the israeli army to quote him to go all the way now harry fear my colleague in gaza has been catching up with people there who are under israeli rocket fire and fall does this report. egypt safa its to facilitate a cease fire barely got off the starting block israel formally accepted the proposal but hamas continued firing dozens of rockets saying that its times were not met the islamic resistance movement says it never received any direct contact
about a ceasefire and only so media reports the accuser's egypt of sidelining it all the while in the middle of this truly asymmetric conflict between israel's advanced coordinated modern military and the palestinians disparate militant groups are the civilians on the receiving end even those in gaza's hospitals five rockets targeted this hospital in north gaza but palestinians also have their own crude rockets which are not targeted on a five indiscriminately into israel not all but certainly most palestinians in gaza believe the hundreds of these crude rockets should be fired into israel in retaliation for israel's targeting of. although the desire for a cease fire is universal how people here want but it changed is certainly not clear. land of feet a bill. for our home home of
a dumb hood now best. in the saddle of. the moment all we ever the meal. we ever had the love of money hope to have the love of the. midnight little love in the. midnight want any action or luck funny an. eighteen year old sees things very differently a palestinian student from northern gaza his brother is a militant with hamas as armed wing. of the whole form. using methods would probably be a serious force for for lawyers and for human rights what else they might consider too serious violations of international law most of our university lecturer and father of eight has lived through for such israeli operations since
two thousand and six he's torn over garza's rocket firings rocket it's only just a tool that the palestinian can react to what gets me. in killing and suffering for everybody i really do care about my children about my family above the safety of my family so i don't like the rockets but sometimes the people of laws to do use what's available to them in order to. act in order to resist the occupation. but both sides in this escalation insist they're acting in self-defense and neither is known for wanting to be the first to back down no matter what the pressure at home or abroad harry fear gaza remark people around the world have shown their disapproval of the israeli operation here the latest pictures from places as far afield as south america and
europe palestinian demonstrations are held on an almost daily basis. at the moment and they are calling for an end to the offensive labeling it a massacre and of war crime. and you can get a full picture of events in gaza in today's cross talk with peter lavelle. take a look at the last sixty five years it's pretty clear that israel is intending to continue to bomb and destroy as much as possible in gaza i think it would have been able to expect the cease fire would these talks would lead to anything since we have sisi on one hand who works for the israelis or the americans and we have units and yeah really has no motivation or intention to stop terrorizing and stop this brutal violence against. the palestinians in gaza. now one hundred billion dollars development bank has been born in brazil a result of the brics summit underway that the new financial institution is to
challenge the west financial sector monopoly to the benefit of the five and merging economies artie's poor scott is at the summit. russian president vladimir putin going to meet with the leaders of bolivia uruguay and venezuela for example amongst many others now these countries their populations equate to around four hundred million people if you combine that with the three billion people represented by the five brics countries then president vladimir putin has met with the ladies representing on behalf of the world's population on his latin america tour it all started the breathless two on friday with a visit to cuba he then of course went with an unannounced visit to nicaragua before stopping off in argentina and then finally in brazil brics summit here in force a liaison hosted by brazilian president dilma rousseff who you may remember was a victim of n.s.a. surveillance as revealed by edward snowden around twelve months ago now ever since then she's been championing for change to the internet on the way that it's
governed in order to protect people's privacy well earlier i managed to ask a question i asked her what changes she would like to see on what changes we have seen in the last twelve months and to me about what is there about the progress we must guarantee privacy on the internet and make the weapon open and democratic and its foundation must be based in the trailer and that's a true requisite for the internet to be an immigrant ever burson and every government has the right to free and open internet. that doesn't believe that one country has the right to lead the way when it comes to internet governance and she feels that each country should have the right to its own governance to ensure privacy well we are the half way stage of the brics summit in forty lays out what exactly has been achieved when russia agreed to write off ninety percent of cuba's soviet era debts the remaining ten percent will be reinvested in joint infrastructure projects in the country it was also a symbolic meeting with formally to fit. in argentina the two countries signed
a peaceful nuclear power deal that will see russia help in areas such as design construction operation and decommissioning of nuclear power plant. in rio president putin attended the football world cup final and received responsibility for the next competition the tournament is in russia in two thousand and eighteen while at the bric summit the nation signed off on a long awaited one hundred billion dollars development bank seen as a rival to the i.m.f. world bank and global dominance of the u.s. dollar it's on top of numerous trade deals so it may have taken less than a week but president vladimir putin no doubt hoping that his whistle stop tour will cement russia latin america ties. well asia times correspondent pepe escobar says the new brics financial institution will create sustainable development for its members what we have in our days is the predominance of college casino capitalism in fact which is a speculative capitalism which you know hot money
a traverse in the world digital speeds enormous that this has nothing to do with productive investment and sustainable development what the brics are the brics are trying to steer the debate and in fact the conditions of. an investment towards productive capitalism now that they have this mechanism of a developing bank and a contingency reserve a mechanism they can help all their countries up part from themselves in terms of infrastructure projects and sustainable developments. and we can tell you that three days after president vladimir putin's visit to cuba the caribbean state has reportedly agreed to lease a military communication base to russia moscow abandoned the facility back in two thousand and one as a goodwill gesture and at america's request. the russian capital is observing
a day of mourning after the worst crash in the history of the moscow metro twenty two people were killed and more than one hundred forty taken to hospital on tuesday dozens of them remain in intensive care so let's have a look at how the tragedy unfolded the rush hour train was traveling at its top speed of seventy kilometers per hour with some two hundred meters away from the next station when the emergency brakes were activated the carriages them rammed into each other and slammed into the tunnel wall. broken bones cuts and severe head wounds these are the main injuries medics had to deal with at the scene dozens still remain in a critical condition to metro employees have been detained and are being questioned in connection with the crash on the raisin in witness the tragedy this is what he told us. john you can see it when you i was thrown into the yeah there was blood on the floor. some people had broken ribs and one person was in all in all the people were hysterical we started to get out we saw during the tunnel real men eventually
broke that door and you saw workers constructing a parallel time they helped us to get out. for tuesday's accident was the worst in the history on the moscow metro but there have been a few others over the years the metro's worst breakdown happened in two thousand and five a power outage then left over fifty stations without electricity on one of the hottest days of the year then a year later construction piled damaged a tunnel and shocked passengers in a passing train and then last summer nearly five thousand people were evacuated from a station near red square because of an electrical fire and earlier this year the foundations from a construction site above actually broke through into the metro and you can see the large concrete pillars here that came through luckily no one was injured. still to come the latest on the crisis in eastern ukraine.
the areas in the region are reeling from deadly artillery attacks by kiev's forces all fueling a refugee exodus in the east plus. russian and u.s. ambassador to the u.n. show that even in high level diplomacy there's always room for a little sarcasm we have a look at who had the last wood and the lights between the points. all the bankers into the circular firing squad put all the bankers jamie diamond the lloyd blankfein the bob diamond put them into a circular firing squad and give them all bullets and let's get rid of all the laws we've got in the system. of the marital dregs of the world.
not just the story could still be just if you see a stage eight looked to be. but speech was. played. there's a media leave us so we leave that maybe. the scene pushes securely play your part of the musical. in their shoes that no one is asking with the guests that you deserve answers from it's all on politicking only on our t.v. . peter.
a pleasure to have you with us here on r t today i'm wrong. come back now this is the mouth of an airstrike on the town in eastern ukraine one of the bombs fell on a black block of flats causing its partial collapse as you can see joined together with rescuers to help those trapped under the rubble. if he could get you to. use a macro. that was you wasn't it but you are you are here with
a book we're going to watch. what. was. well that boy is now in hospital with seven others but almost a dozen civilians have been confirmed killed the government is denying responsibility saying that this was the work of an unidentified jet but scenes like these are repeated on a daily basis across the east fueling a refugee exodus artie's running as more. uprooted driven out of desperation these people have been flooding into the roster of region by past weeks trying to escape the bloody war that has engulfed the south east of ukraine this refugee camp is literally just several meters away from the ukrainian border so for people staying here a war is still very much
a part of daily routine they say recently the artillery fire at night has gotten closer and the memories of the bombardment back at home do not grow any less if it and said as well. but those that. are why you. didn't. know it's a good one bishop go to church as well that would be a hope. the muscle to pull out. you know the children may appear to be immune to the horrors happening in their homeland playing and carrying on as usual but once prodded they show deep emotional scars they have like what you have. but you will but the most of the molds. shucks i just like both. many who love their loved ones behind haven't heard from them for several days mostly listening you get
a boost to. watch me you must have no time for you just the low. value. of the sky that. says refugee camps are simply temporary ports for these people who will have to find new jobs new houses new ways to live not because they didn't like the lives they had but because they were denied those by census fighting it in a go school r t rostov on don region. green has been tweeting about his stay at the camp and you can follow her she documented the struggle of those forced to leave their homes. british intelligence has a wide diversity of tools for cyber spying and data manipulation that's what's been revealed in a document recently leaked by whistleblower edward snowden social network accounts are no longer private agents can access data and disable web pages they find suspicious and they can even tap into skype calls and use private e-mail to send
spoof letters she spend on e bay to what online polls you have participated in all these things are visible to the agents and they can even manipulate the results of the voting well sarah firth spoke to campaigners that see such practices as deeply illegal. there's more than one hundred projects in the listing for g c excuse joint threat research intelligence group they've all got quite eccentric names angry pirates a tool that will permanently disable a target's account on their computer now in a statement to r.t. he say that they are not full well despite what g c h q has said campaigners are saying that if true the allegations are extremely serious if this is true and have proven to be true it's a huge deal because again it used to say if you're actually being involved in propaganda and trying to manipulate debate that's not the best for them to protect those they're for national security not to read on one poll either way the latest
can certainly be reignited the calls the further oversight g.c.a. activities it's an argument that we've heard many times before and it's not one that's looking likely to quieten down any time soon so our reporting from london meanwhile the british government is far from asking the intelligence community to limit their powers the new security law that has been already approved by the house of commons will further expand monitoring capability and it will make mobile companies keep customers private data for up to twelve months when he goes ling an investigative journalist says the government is interested in watching everyone. well it's certainly not going to protect citizens what what how on earth can you protect british citizens by eroding our civil liberties and we just had an announcement this week from david cameron the business spend one billion pounds on the violence so wrong of the running back this enormous industry which is out of
control he's actually want to spend more money on surveillance they've been doing this in concert with the n.s.a. for so many years now that companies like google twitter microsoft facebook are actually almost part of that surveillance system don't they not interested anymore in going to the courts in order to ask a judge if they want to put somebody under surveillance they just assume that everybody is under surveillance still to come in the program is it a question of human rights or company profit californian activist demand that big business stop selling water from a drought region we've got a story short. if you want to hear some red hot arguments then you could do worse than listening into a u.n. security council debate here we have russian envoy to target your kin and his u.s. counterpart samantha power laying into each other over the crimea and he once told her not to speak while talking when she raged on with an argument later she said tolstoy in choke off will be envious of jordan's imagination. or found out who's
had the last word in the latest round. the russian and american ambassadors to the united nations usually keep their negotiations and debates within the chambers of the world body headquarters however a tit for tat between the two diplomats is currently playing out in the public domain sparked by something written in the pages of a glossy magazine the august issue of vanity fair features an article on samantha power in which she strikes a bit of a verbal jab against her russian counterpart here's the context the reporter says he reminded miss power that ambassador vitaly churkin jokingly asked her if she'd join the russian punk group pussy riot after she met with the two famous band members and bassett her powers says she told mr churkin that their first concert stop on tour would be where russia holds its political prisoners though regrettably she can't sing the u.s. envoy claims she got a lot. saying it's what passes as
a small victory all with only the verbal jabs and snarky ended there it doesn't in a statement posted on facebook ambassador churkin says while it did stoke his vanity to see himself referenced in the article he found hours pussy riot tore stop comment to be rather lame saying quote they never performed in guantanamo after all ouch a reference to america's biggest stain on international law and human rights violations ambassador churkin also sets the record straight saying quote i called samantha and explained to her that russia did not have any political prisoners she seemed to be amused and promised to get back to me on this she never did unquote ambassador churkin claims that miss power told him he got the upper hand in that exchange but he says he will claim it as a small victory hopefully when the two diplomats meet once again face to face at the u.n. there will be no hard feelings and the debates can go back to revolve around issues
such as creating more peace and less conflict. in new york. more stories for you at r.t. dot com to including the first medic to protest against guantanamo force feeding find out the story of the nurse that stands up for detainees rights to hunger strike also made to google and robot which can carry a one hundred eighty kilograms a move with the speed of a with. it looks incredible it's already been tested during military drills in hawaii you can find the details online. campaign is a recusing food giant nestlé of making millions expensive ordinary people say the company's taking water from a canyon in california to bottle and sell but as the region faces a third year of drought activists want it to stop talk to peter the president of pacific institute says a great debate is looming on the case. one of the problems with this bottling plant
is that every bit of water that goes to the bottling plant is water that's taken away from this desert ecosystem there's also concern among some of the local communities about the impacts on groundwater in the bail ability of groundwater. or other uses in the local area this water is bottled it's put on trucks it's shipped out of the community and it's water that's not available for the local community so it's increasingly a source of tension and concern and in the area of water in the desert is very rare and this is an example where perhaps we should question the value of putting a bottled water plant in the desert. going bust this next coming up pair on the international.
series of a couple of pieces tried to clear. up a polish going to be going to want to get much more of the story changing every minute. cut me no law no weapons of my own life but. most of us think that's setting all time. most cases the most elite moments. sometimes from nothing which. is so easy and simple. it's not just about the story will be just if you see a stage eight look to be. the teacher was sent.
home. to your friend post a photo from a vacation you can't afford. to different. the boss repeats the same old joke of course you like. your ex-girlfriend still pens tear jerking poetry keep jobs ignore it. we post only what really matters at r.t. to your facebook news feed. ok. what's really good folks. filling in for abby martin and this is breaking the set so four hundred billion dollars can sure buy a lot of things these days right like feeding every school kid in america fighting every global humanitarian crisis and rebuilding this country's entire infrastructure but apparently one thing it can't buy is a fund it's
a fully functional fighter jet c. for the last eight years u.s. taxpayers have spent a whopping three hundred ninety eight billion dollars on a fleet of f. thirty five joint strike fighters the next generation of lethal military planes the only problem however is that over the years the development and construction of this plane has turned into the poster child for military waste not only is the program seven years behind schedule but it's basically ins and billions of dollars over budget and is now expected to cost over one trillion dollars over the course of the next five decades but hey at least we have a plane that will spread american freedom across the world skies right now actually no it turns out the department of defense still have isn't sure if the heap of metal is even safe to fly so the f. thirty five was supposed to make its long awaited debut at the former international air show in england this week but thanks to a mysterious engine fire last month the plane was grounded now.
